Anyone know of a reputable U.S supplier where I can get Pauline Violet ? Or, can we get bulbs from outside the U.S. without having to pay for a certificate? Would love to grow these late season for my daughters wedding. Thanks for your help!

Sorry about the mispell in the subject line...should be Bulbs. Don't know how to edit in subject line :(

May be tough to find a well known vendor offering them, most only offer Ranunculus in mixtures, and most I see offering individual colors, are only labeled by color and not the cultivar name. Have you grown Ranunculus before?

I did find one source offering them, a Dutch company that ships to the U.S. (most bulbs are raised in Holland for export).

Easy to Grow Bulbs offers purple. They have a good reputation, and send excellent looking bulbs. I did however receive some mislabeled bulbs (Achimines) from them last spring, and didn't bother contacting them, so I can't attest to their reliability or customer service in such matters.

I too received some mislabeled bulbs from them last year. I've ordered from them many times in the past and this was the first mix up. I did contact them and they sent replacements this spring. They do stand by their products and are very easy to work with, so order with confidence.

I bet it was a problem with their supplier last year. Hopefully they have it all worked out. Smiling

I think these are lovely flowers. Tried growing them in the past and they did nothing for me. Is there a secret to success to grow then? I think I got mine at Lowes or Wal Mart back then.
